He was "wlaking dead" the moment he shot the cops. He could have walked into a police station naked with his hands cuffed, flanked by 2 lawyers, and they would have still found a reason to kill him.

The state of Washington should contribute the cost savings of not having to have a trial to the fund for the families of the slain police officers.

Yep glad he got what he deserved. Hope the belly shot was painful. But man there are a lot of unanswered questions that need to be addressed. Why was he even walking the streets? How was a felon able to get a hand gun? Where the Hell was he able to 150g's to post his bail? Bet Huckabee is feeling like **** for letting this low life walk from prison.

oh, 'accused,' ''suspected,' 'convicted,' 'alleged' - let's not quibble over little details.
















If we're talking justice served I say let the bear eat this guy in peace

I sure wouldn't miss Maurice, but where I come from,

Quote:
The officer approached the car, then detected movement behind him, recognized the suspect Maurice Clemmons and ordered him to show his hands and stop. "He wouldn't stop," Pugel said. "The officer fired several rounds, took the person into custody."
would not fly.

Shooting someone because they would not stop is not justifiable. The officer must be in immediate danger.

Consider, though, there was already a massive manhunt for this guy who was considered ARMED and EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! That may not fly under normal circumstances, but when there is already a manhunt for the guy, he's considered EXTREMELY DANGEROUS, the officer is without any backup.......I don't think I blame him.

It's not about the cop being judge, jury and executioner as UA said....that's not it at all. This guy is already on the loose with an extremely large manhunt, considered to be one dangerous and armed SOB. If an officer encountered him alone and the guy didn't stop....what are you going to do (as the cop)? Granted, it would be better to shoot him non-fatally, but its not like he had a lot of time to think about it. Considering all the circumstances, he surely thought his life was in danger from the suspect.

Another factor to consider (which could go both ways) is that tension was already pretty high because something similar to this just happened a few weeks ago too. Some nut job tried to kill two cops in something like a drive by. He killed one of the two police in the car. So these cops just lost one about two weeks before this new guy killed four more.

Tensions were probably much higher than normal.

Before anyone starts putting words in my mouth, I don't object to this guy being shot if, indeed, that's what needed to happen to subdue him. What I object to are the statements that because he allegedly shot 4 cops, he deserved to be executed rather than receiving any sort of fair trial. That's not the country I want to live in, where people can kill because others "deserve it." Killing shouldn't be taken lightly, no matter what someone else is perceived to have done.
